    I work for a dealer. There are no plans for any updates to the 9900. The new models will be available in many different configurations for both severe (dump, mixer, etc) and for OTR type tractors. I have seen several layouts and these are really nice trucks.

    How did you do the framework for the curtain side? I'd like to do one soon.

    Guys, the truck Rick used had been crashed and was beat up pretty good. He used what was good and built this unique ride. He has also built a large version of the Radio Flyer wagon.

    Very nice combo! Do you have pics of the framework under the cover? I would like to do the same with the trash bag but not sure of the framework. Did you use aluminum tubing or styrene and bend to shape?

    Thank you sir. It was built for my friends Shawn & Penny Brownfield. He asked me to build it for him, he never has enough time.

    Thanks everyone! The final results are over in Under Glass. I donated this one to the Convoy for Kids fundraiser show yesterday. She brought $135 in the silent auction. Glad I could do a small part to help.

    Thanks everybody. She brought in $135 at the auction today. The voting buckets alone for the real trucks brought in $4900! There were 40 really nice trucks there and a great cause was supported well!
